At the College of Nursing, research is a primary foundation of our mission. We are developing innovations to enhance the education and preparation of nurses, improving the delivery of patient care across an eclectic array of populations, and translating research evidence into practice.
By integrating our research into teaching practice, scholarship is a fundamental component of the academic curriculum. As part of the Texas A&M Health Science Center, we continually strive to establish interprofessional and interdisciplinary collaborations in research to enhance the lives of people across the state, nation and around the world. We are also dedicated to establishing strategic partnerships with a variety of public and private entities in order to support nursing research that addresses increasingly dynamic health care needs.
Message from the Assistant Dean of Research
Welcome to the College of Nursing at the Texas A&M University Health Science Center. We are an emerging, premier, Tier One Research Institute with a wealth of interdisciplinary resources.
We have a diverse array of research areas and are continually exploring new avenues for interdisciplinary partnerships. Our faculty and students uphold the TAMU tradition of excellence and integrity in our research endeavors. We conduct cutting-edge interventional research focusing on vulnerable populations, bio-behavioral outcomes, and health professions education.
As the Assistant Dean of Research and Evidence-Based Practice, I am excited to offer opportunities for growth and development of discovery knowledge. I encourage inquiries into our pioneering programs.
